Overview

Let me ask you this: if you were stuck in a pathetic, boring, and lonely life, and your world was turned upside down in the events of a single night – would you embrace the adventure and take the ride? Would you take the chance to escape and become somebody whose actions could affect the entire world? Or would you mourn the loss of your ordinary existence, because of the sacrifice that comes with seeing the world as you know it in a different light?

This is the question that the Harris sisters must face when one family’s secret reveals an unknown danger, uncovering a world where those terrifying things you saw as a child weren’t just shadows or the result of an overactive imagination, but the very creatures you imagined them to be. In this place reality and fantasy become the same, and every day you are hunted like prey. The battle to survive is constant and love is cruel, betrayal is real and evil presents itself around every bend.

It all comes back to this one night of your boring life, and the chance to change the life you wished away every day. It all begins with a secret; a treasured possession, which was found quite by accident. Now Kaulculas, the King that controls the darkness, knows that they have it…and he wants it back.

Meet the Author
avatar-author

Amie Jane was born in 1983, in Adelaide, Australia. As a young child, she had a wonderful imagination. Amie Jane relished all kinds of indoor and outdoor play and, among other activities, immensely enjoyed children’s pantomimes, concerts, films and story-telling. Long before she could actually read and write, she took great delight in being read to, and in creating her own short stories; dictating many to her parents who wrote them down on her behalf.

In time, Amie Jane developed into a creative young writer and a fluent, expressive, and animated reader. Passionate about reading, she became an avid fan of many classic authors including, Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R Tolkien, Stephen King and later she found inspiration from authors such as J.K. Rowling, Suzanne Collins and Stephenie Meyer.

At age 11, Amie Jane and her family moved to eastern Australia, in the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, where apart from school, her main ‘focus’ in life was living and breathing basketball.

Inspired by a reoccurring nightmare, Amie Jane aged 16, woke in the middle of the night and scribbled down on paper the repeated scene she kept seeing in her dreams, and placed it folded within her paperwork. As an aspiring actor, she envisaged herself, one day, acting in a screenplay she would create based around this short scene. Her loving and supportive parents had always encouraged her and her older brother, to reach for the stars and to follow their dreams. Nevertheless, preoccupied with basketball, that piece of paper was eventually out of sight, out of mind.

It would be some 10 years later; after gaining various qualifications, having dabbled in several careers, relocating to the state of Queensland, and her aspiring acting career now replaced with achieving high-end sales in the corporate world, that she would come across the very same folded piece of paper when sorting through old paperwork. It was then, Amie Jane decided to use her downtime to write a book around this one scene, starting at the middle and building her characters and story around it.

In time, struggling to juggle corporate world demands, and trying to fuel her true passion for writing, Amie Jane decided to abandon the sensible notion of saving to buy a house, a decision she had been striving towards, and instead, take a few years out of full-time paid employment and travel throughout the world writing and living-off her hard earned savings.

Throughout the years, embracing her parent’s words of encouragement, but driven by her own ambition, determination, and efforts, Amie Jane followed her dreams to become the creative, motivated young woman she is today. 

She lived by the belief  'If you don't have the courage to chase your dreams, how can you possibly catch them', and in 2016, ‘The Harris Sisters’ was born.

    Thank you for my copy of The Harris Sisters. Your imagery was powerful and your vision pure and romantic and stunningly creative. There was an escapism in the world you created that was grounded by the innocence of the romance. It was truly beautiful and a lovely distraction from reality!

    I just finished The Harris Sisters! Admittedly its taken me a while to read, but as AJ’s friend I wanted to savour her work and enjoy the journey. Her style of writing is truly amazing! When I was younger I was enthralled by Enid Blyton the famous five & secret seven and her ability to totally encapsulate my mind into the fantasy of the stories, lives and adventures of the characters. I’m totally blown away at Amie’s ability to totally embrace the same sentiments I felt whilst reading her book. Girl, you’re an amazing author! I’m proud of you and completely in awe of what you’ve created. I can not wait to read your next masterpiece novel 🙏🏻

    This book takes you down mystery lane into a magical fantasy world that I could truly relate too. You captured the gift of life and love all in one and the mysterious events that took place between kept me longing for more. Guessing, wondering, imagining what I would do if this were to happen to me. This book allowed me to escape from my reality and let my imagination run wild. It took me to another place where anything was possible. Their were moments of darkness balanced with the warmth of love, romance and friendship.
    I’m looking forward to seeing what this talented and creative author comes up with next.

    Halle’s Review of ‘The Harriet Sisters.’

    In the past I have never really enjoyed reading, I come from a world of technology and ipads. When I was asked to read this book and write a review I was hesitant at first until I started to get into. It was so easy to fall in love with all the characters and I found myself waking up in the morning and reaching for this book instead of reaching for my ipad.

    Penny and Lily-ann reminded me a lot of myself and my sister, their character flaws and funny moments. I read as Lilly-ann got her first kiss, and through every twist, tale and adventure. At the end of the book, I had emotions that I have never experienced through reading before. I had made fictional friends, had travelled through their story and cried with them through their heartbreak. This is the best first story I could have read and it has given me a gift of reading, which I haven’t had till now. Thank you for all the work you have put into this book A Jane it was great.

    A. Jane captures what it is to be a teenager. She convincingly writes as a young outcast, growing up in a confusing and often threatening world. In the world of The Harris Sisters, that world is filled with magic and dark forces, but any girl who had had their life turned upside down will find something to relate to here. There is rivalry, betrayal, longing and heartbreak. A. Jane doesn’t say away from difficult subject matter and doesn’t sugar coat the world (real or fantastic) when it comes to sadness, danger and loss.
